– provide high quality legal advice and bespoke solutions to accommodate the sophisticated needs of the bank's wealth management clients in a timely and consistent manner

Keen to achieve the work-life agility that you desire? We're open to discussing how this could work for you (and us).

Take the next step:

Are you truly collaborative? Succeeding at UBS means respecting, understanding and trusting colleagues and clients. Challenging others and being challenged in return. Being passionate about what you do. Driving yourself forward, always wanting to do things the right way. Does that sound like you? Then you have the right stuff to join us. Apply now.
